I don't think so

See the edited answer to 33 above.

34 - Yes. One of the main reason to have multiple pictures is so that you can show both the whole scene and also individual details (or just multiple angles of the main scene).
josdu wrote:We can make a short story for every entry though, right?
35 - Yes, there is a place for description. However, the judging is pretty much on the MOC itself, not on the story that accompanies it.

36 - Yes.

37 - As noted in the rules "You may edit your images digitally, but only to clean up the images for presentation." This means you can do things like crop, size, adjust brightness/darkness, sharpen, edit out backgrounds, etc. What you can't do is use photo editing to somehow change the MOC (e.g. remove supports in Photoshop so it looks like something is flying, change the colors, edit together photos to make it seem like a larger castle, etc).

I have seen some soon-to-be-submitted entries, most of them will end up in the naughty list due to their size.
38 - First up, I should point out Josh's third point here, but I'll go further to explain. The reason to have a size limit is the same reason to have a limit on the number of photos, to make it actually possible to judge 400+ entries. 800 wide is about the appropriate size to fit in an open browser window. To see anything larger than this, you'll either have to scroll left and right to see the whole MOC (untenable for hundreds of entries) or, more likely, just automatically shrink things to the window size (which would remove any advantage of larger photos). And so, to keep things fair for everyone, there has to be a common size limit. If you are having problems with resizing the FAQ lists several resources.
